The Gombe State Government has sent a condolence message to the family of the former Chairman of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, Nuhu Poloma, over his death.
It was reported that the former PDP chairman died on Monday at the age of 78.
The government in a condolence message on Thursday commiserated with popular Kannywood actor and producer, Ali Nuhu, and other members of the family on the passing of their father, brother, and grandfather.
The state Governor, Yahaya Inuwa, described Nuhu as a “respected elder statesman, courageous politician, and patriot who served the state and nation diligently as a federal lawmaker in the second republic, customs officer, public servant, party chieftain and community leader”.
Governor Inuwa further stated that the death of the PDP chieftain is a great loss not only to his immediate family but the state and the nation as a whole.
He prayed that God Almighty grant him eternal rest and give those he left behind the fortitude to bear the loss.
Meanwhile, Ali Nuhu has appreciated the supports and prayers received since the demise of his father.
On his verified Instagram page on Wednesday, the actor wrote in Hausa, “Ni da yan’uwana muna mika sakon godiya ga dukkan wadanda suka yi Mana ta’aziyyar mahaifinmu da ya rasu.Mungode Allah ya saka da alheri. Na gode da soyayya da kaunar da na samu daga gareku gaba daya, Allah ya bar zumunci.”
The Google Translate version of the post read, “My brothers and I send our heartfelt appreciation to all those who have sympathised with us on the death of our father. Thank you for your love.”
